IIK Strongly Supports Hands-free Cell Use
Distracted driving costs lives – it’s as simple as that. One of the best ways to cut down on distracted driving is to institute a hands-free requirement for drivers. Distractions while driving are those things that take our minds off driving and those that take our eyes off the road. Requiring hands-free use of cell phones helps cut down on those visual distractions. Read more about hands-free here.
IIK Working to Fix a Broken PIP System
One of IIK’s goals is to fix Kentucky’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) system. It is the only medical coverage in KY that has no means of controlling costs. There are no fee schedules or network rates, and provider bills are presumed to be reasonable. Recent court decisions have hampered the ability of insurers to examine if the treatment relates to the accident or is reasonably priced.
IIK advocates for allowing insurers a means to challenge the reasonableness of a provider’s billing and giving insurers the ability to use claims investigation methods to determine if treatment is appropriate.
IIK is working with legislators and other stakeholders to make positive changes in PIP, including combatting fraud that is rampant in the Metro Louisville area. Read more about PIP here.
